This is a bit confusing. Sometimes public use dharma in the same sense as the English word religion.

But as per Wikipedia entry for Dharma:

There is no single word translation for dharma in western languages.

Is it true?

  • Dharma is that which holds everything or one without which everything falls.Religion is no where near a good synonym of Dharma.

  • For ex-religions can be many but Dharma is one.
